Microsoft works toward IPv6-only single stack network

Microsoft CSEO IPv6 Case Study  My job at Microsoft CSEO (used to be called IT) is to have our end-users be IPv6-only.

We currently support over 220,000 users in around 800 offices globally. Our biggest user population has over 100,000 users in…

Under the Hood of the New ARIN.net

On 2 March 2019, ARIN deployed its new website, a project that at its zenith required the focus and work of more than half of all ARIN staff and constituted one of the biggest software deployments in the history of the company. This may seem like a large amount of effort just to change the look and feel of our website, but there was much, much more going on behind the scenes. While this article…
